Wonderful - just wonderful. No need to say any more. You've read all the other reviews and my wife and I concur. So, take my word - when next in Byron Bay do yourself that favour I mentioned in the headline and give this little treasure a go.

My husband and I stayed here over the Christmas/ New year break for 1 night, it was one of the only places left. Although it was slightly out of Byron, we agreed that it was more suited to us anyway. This tranquil little gem is located only about 8 mins drive from the main Byron area & is located right...

Thanks so much for your great description of your experience after your recent stay at our motel. Your comments are extremely helpful to future guests and us, as we are tucked away out of town and can be a little difficult to find without the aid of a nav.system! we look forward to welcoming you back again.

No A/C, just a fan. Hot water is barely hot, kettle provided didn't work, coffee cups were dirty when we went to use them, sheets were stained, rooms weren't attended to daily, the door is not sealed properly & with that we found MULTIPLE LIVE cockroaches & huntsman spiders which I'm petrified of & would rather not share a room...

We were sorry to read about your disappointing stay with us. However, in response to your comments, yes these smaller economy rooms are basic and have a ceiling fan as stated - no air/con and during the Christmas/new year holidays the prices are higher than normal times. We were disappointed to have to read your complaints after you left the...

We stayed in the Tallow Suite which is essentially a one bedroom apartment. The apartment was spotlessly clean. The kitchen was well equipped including a coffee plunger which made us happy. There is a large bedroom with one queen and one single bed and a lounge room with tv, games and books. The umbrellas in the room were a thoughtful...

Once again a lovely stay at this little gem situated at one of Australia's most beautiful beaches, which was just over a quiet road and through the dunes.
